ReSource Waste Facilities Deliver Thanks

The ReSource Waste teams in Massachusetts delivered some much-needed Thanksgiving cheer to their local communities in advance of the holiday.

On the Monday before Thanksgiving, ReSource Roxbury joined forces with the New Market Business Association and Republic Waste Services to deliver 150 turkeys to the Orchard Gardens School in Roxbury and 50 turkeys to The Mason School, also in Roxbury. The turkeys were provided to the families of the students at both schools.

ReSource Roxbury was represented by Facility Manager Stanley Walczak and Sales Manager Kevin Murphy. “We got a standing ovation at both schools,” Walczak said.

The Resource Waste team in Ware kicked into gear the day before Thanksgiving. Chris Lowe, the ReSource Ware facility manager, hit the road with Weigh Master Melissa Avery.

Lowe and Avery delivered family-style Thanksgiving meals to the Ware Police Department and Ware Fire Department – a turkey dinner, with all of the fixings, that will serve up to 16 people at each location.

“They’ll just have to pop them in the oven on Thanksgiving Day,” Lowe said.

Greg Leahey, the president and chief operating officer of ReSource Waste Services, said that ReSource has long had a focus on addressing food insecurity in its local communities, and also has made an effort to express gratitude to local emergency personnel and other essential workers. “It is important for our local facilities to help serve the needs of our neighbors, and those needs are heightened now with the coronavirus pandemic. We really appreciate our local emergency workers, and we know that they are facing stress like they never have before. And many of our neighbors are struggling financially as well, so we were happy to provide turkeys to Roxbury families. We aim to be an integral part of our communities, and to help them to be as happy and healthy as possible.”
